Joined by special guests including Yeah Yeah Yeah's Karen O. and Nick Zinner, the Walkmen's Walter Martin premiered his solo debut the kid-friendly We're All Young Together.

At the live premiere of songs from his child-friendly album We’re All Young Together, Walter Martin did have some kids in attendance but the mostly older crowd at Joe’s Pub was there to see Martin and a full band perform for an hour. Martin, of the band The Walkmen also had some special guests including Kat Edmonson, two members of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Karen O and Nick Zinner, plus a small backing chorus conducted by “honorary choirmaster” Hamilton Leithauser (also of The Walkmen who are on hiatus).

Two decades on, Superunknown remains a landmark album and the formidable Soundgarden played the entirety of it at a club show in New York.

On the eve of the remastered, deluxe re-release of their seminal album Superunknown, Soundgarden performed the entirety of the album at an exclusive club show in New York for Citi card holders. The price of admission? A mere $19.94. Ah if only tickets were normally so cheap. The many fans who lined up early for this show, some since 3 pm, or otherwise were begging to get in, probably remember such low prices. These days, the Soundgarden and Nine Inch Nails (whose 1994 The Downward Spiral came out on the same day as Superunknown) tour priced the best seats over $100, though some venues did offer $20 nosebleeds (dates below). If you didn’t get in, you did miss out on a unique experience but at least the whole concert will be broadcast on Sirius / XM Radio on Howard Stern’s Howard101 channel June 13 at 10 PM EDT.

The Felice Brothers are set to kick off a summer run to promote their forthcoming album Favorite Waitress and stopped into NYC for a small show to road test some new material.

The Felice Brothers will be releasing their new album Favorite Waitress via Dualtone Music Group later this summer but they have already started to kick off the promotional machine with a string of dates in the Carolinas and the UK before a full tour of the US this summer (dates below). Before all that however, the band, Ian Felice, James Felice, Josh Rawson, Greg Farley and David Estabrook, all made the trek a couple hours down from the Catskills for a sold-out show at the Mercury Lounge in New York.

Christopher Taylor, aka SOHN, just released his album Tremors on which he creates skeletal ambient soundscapes that diverge into dark, trippy, soulful submersions.

Christopher Taylor, the musician known as SOHN, has been making a name for himself with productions and remixes for Disclosure, Lana del Rey, BANKS and many others when he released his EP The Wheel. The title track for that EP was included on his well-received new full-length Tremors. London born, SOHN (I think it’s pronounced Sean (like John with an S)) is now based in Vienna but visited New York for two sold out shows, the first of which was at the Bowery Ballroom on a Friday night. The venue was minimally lit by tube lights on the stage, the perfect accompaniment to the dark electronic/dubstep world and atmospheric ‘80s-tinged soundscapes created by SOHN.
